Say what you will about where Morbid Angel stands in their current state of affairs, but you cannot deny their legacy. No death metal musician will ever question the level of creativity possessed by guitarist Trey Azagthoth or the rapid fire thunder generated by ex-drummer Pete Sandoval. Nor can one dismiss the deliveries on the classic albums by vocalists David Vincent or Steve Tucker. The first thing people will notice and probably give me shit about here is that I don’t have “Illud Divinum Insanus” in last place. Sure, that album had some material on it that I didn’t care for (although I do find humor and other redeeming qualities in “Radikult”, for what it is), but put those aside and you’ll find songs like “Blades For Baal” that are quite reminiscent of the quality of their earlier material and far superior to anything from “Heretic” (which I found to be a total snoozefest.) You’ll also notice there are two albums tied for first place. Why? Before the more I try to say I love one more than the other, the more I’m reminded of the at least equal supremacy of the other… and the too albums are quite different, yet equally great. So, bring forth your flamethrowers people, I’m ready to catch hell for this!
